We are pleased to confirm the continuation of support from The Henry Smith Charity for our current Instructor Training Scheme as we move into Year 2 of delivery. The Henry Smith Fund were very pleased with our achievements & impact to date. The ITS has seen a record year working with 24 young people gaining 81 qualifications between them. In February we successfully delivered our first National Pool Lifeguard Qualification in partnership with Hengrove Leisure Centre. In March trainees completed their training on the ss Great Britain Go Aloft! High ropes course and First Aid Training in preparation for this year’s employment of trainee Instructors. Several of the young people who completed training are now in gainful employment following the completion of the Pool Lifeguard Course.
There will be more instructor opportunities as the summer season approaches with Young Bristol Activities department and other centres which Young Bristol has developed partnerships with. The young people involved show total engagement to the scheme and their incredible efforts have given them huge rewards in the opportunities for employment which they now have. Well done to everyone involved!
